Application of these terms

These terms and conditions, which incorporate our Privacy Policy, apply to bookings made with Kowalewski Holdings Limited or its affiliates for the Amity Motel ("we", "us" or "our") and the use of the website, including any products, services, content or functionality available using that website (the "website"). By booking with us or otherwise using the website you agree to be bound by these terms.

In these terms "you" means the person accessing or using the website and/or making room bookings and "your" has a corresponding meaning. If you make bookings on behalf of others you must ensure that each of those persons are aware of and comply with these terms.


Purchasing from the website

To place a booking with us you must be at least [18] years of age. The maximum number of staying guests per room is illustrated in the room occupancy details on the website. By making a booking, you agree to adhere to this number and to otherwise be responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages on the terms below. Only named booking party/parties are allowed to use the property and its facilities, any third party visitors are only allowed access at our express permission.

To secure any booking we require valid credit card details at the time of reservation. All room rates and charges on our site are in New Zealand dollars (NZ$) and include New Zealand GST (if any).



Payment is to be made by credit card. The functionality of our online payment facility is for your convenience only and you use it at your own risk. Information transmitted over the internet is never entirely secure. We take reasonable measures to protect your payment information (e.g. all transactions are processed using a secure online payment facility), however you are responsible for ensuring your computer is free from viruses or other forms of corruption. We are not responsible or liable for any unauthorised access or interference with any of your payments.

We may deduct any amounts you owe us from any credit or debit card information you provide us.

Cancellation, Non-Arrival and Early Departure Conditions

Cancellations are to be received in writing via email to [email protected]. Your booking shall be deemed non-refundable in the event of the below:

For individual bookings

  • Bookings outside 24 hours of arrival – Free Cancellation
  • Bookings within 24 hours of arrival – 100% charge of all rooms booked

For group bookings - A minimum of 5 rooms are classes as a group booking.

  • If you cancel a Group Booking more than 14 days from your arrival date, you will lose your deposit but will not have to pay for the booking.
  • If you cancel a Group Booking on or within 14 days of your arrival date, you will be charged in full for the entire booking, including accommodation and any other booked services.  Any decision to waive or reduce any of those charges will be at our sole discretion.
  • If you amend your Group Booking on or within 14 days of your arrival date with the effect that there is a partial cancellation or postponement, you will still be liable to pay the booking in full, including any cancelled portion. If a partial cancellation results in less than 5 rooms booked together, we may decide to charge the rooms at the advertised rate at the time of the stay.



Non-arrival guests, who are unable to attend or fail to attend for whatever reason forfeit the full amount of the booking, unless cancelled in accordance with the timeframes above.

In the rare event we need to cancel your booking with us, please be aware that we cannot be held liable for circumstances beyond our control and that our liability to you is limited to the refund of any payment already made.
